MASSIVE PAYOUT FOR INAUGURAL ROBBY GORDON OFF-ROAD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS AT GLEN HELEN OUTDOOR NATIONAL MX TRACK


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (August 15, 2018)– SST officials have announced plans for the Robby Gordon Off-Road World Championships to take place Friday, November 30; Saturday, December 1; and Sunday, December 2 at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California.
Southern California is a place where Off-Road Truck Racing, Motocross, FMX, and the UTV industry all collide on a daily basis. Glen Helen Raceway provides the ultimate location to host such a large-scale event such as the Robby Gordon Off-Road World Championship will be.
“Last year we settled the SST World Championship over in Lake Elsinore with an incredible Stadium event where it came down to a single point to decide Paul Morris as the SST CHAMPION over Matt Brabham, but off-road racing is a lot more than just SST trucks and UTV’s. Back in the beginning of my career we use to race at Riverside Raceway with the Mickey Thompson Off Road Grand Prix, and I wanted to bring back something similar with 2 classes of Motocross, 2 classes of UTV’s, FMX and SST Trucks for a weekend long Off Road World Championship. The Glen Helen Raceway campus provides the perfect location for us to host large crowds for a weekend long event with EPIC racing, camping, music, and venders all close to the Los Angeles area,” Stated Stadium SUPER Trucks President, Robby Gordon.
Set against a mountain side North of San Bernardino, California on 256 acres of shared county property the Glen Helen Raceway was built in 1985 to host several sand drag, off-road, and motocross events at various tracks constructed over the years. However, it was the annual stop for the Motocross National event that put Glen Helen on the map with its National MX track. Famous for its famous steep hills, jumps, and banking it offers the perfect combination of extreme obstacles for the various disciplines the Robby Gordon Off-Road World Championships will feature, as all classes will look to conquer the ever challenging outdoor motocross track.
The 2018 Off Road Word Championships will feature 2 unique classes of Motocross; the Unlimited class will feature 250 2 Stroke vs. 450 Pro, and the 125/250 class will feature 125 2 Stroke vs. 250 4 Stroke Pro races. The best riders from all around the world will be on hand to battle for one of the richest purses of the year with the Unlimited Class battling for $20,000 cash to the overall winner, while the 125/250 MX riders will have there own $10,000 overall prize to go after.
Principal of Glen Helen Raceway, Bud Feldkamp voiced his excitement for the newly announced Robby Gordon Off-Road World Championships.
“I am very excited about Robby Gordon’s Off-Road World Championships coming to Glen Helen Raceway this year. As a long-time off-road enthusiast, I myself can remember all the excitement that was shared at places like Riverside Raceway in the 70’s with these Mickey Thompson style events. Glen Helen is on board and ready to do everything possible to make it a truly unique race experience for everyone.”
UTV Pro is Quickly becoming one of the most popular, and most affordable forms of off-road racing today. The UTV division will feature two different classes with the Turbo and Normally Aspirated cars. The two classes will be competing together for a large $10,000 to win overall prize.
Also being contested over the course of the weekend will be a huge FMX Best Trick contest, and an amateur Jump Contest that will be open to all pre-runners, desert and short-course trucks, buggys, cars, and UTV’s. More information regarding both events will be released in the coming weeks.
Robby Gordon Off-Road World Championships is not just action-packed racing on track, make sure to come out to the track early each day as a full off-road and motocross life style village will be happening throughout the day. This will serve as one of the last opportunities to visit with your favorite off-road vendors, and exhibitors to get those last minute Christmas gifts for the off-road enthusiast on your list.

The races where awesome today! If you can make it tomorrow.....make the time to go watch! Robbie did a great job of keeping the flow moving and down time between races only to about 15 mins.
Josh Grant made the bikes exicting by crashing in the second turn and having to work his way threw the pack to win.(he also fell down again but just was on the throttle)

In the trucks Sheldon Creed worked his way threw the pack(started 4th) to lead the race to only have his truck give up the ghost with only one turn to go!!!! It was heart breaking. Also Robby Gordon was leading the race but decided to make the race little more exicting by rolling at the top of mount Helen to only be hit by creed and brooks(it was a blind down hill) punted back on his wheels to keep leading the race for a while. But his truck sounded pretty sick after that and he dnf.
Overall my seven year old said it best!!!! WOW Dad. Thanks for bringing me!
So thanks Robby for putting on an awesome event!

Caught some of the event on Facebook this weekend, looked like an awesome layout. Hopefully they do a better job getting in more shortcourse racers. Pro buggy and prolite weren't added to the schedule until Nov. 6th, gotta give teams more time than that...
